CM, the docs suspected I had gastritis due to taking a bunch of aleve on an empty stomach for a few weeks.
They gave me 40mg worth of Prilosec to take. I only took that for a few days, then went to 20mg then quit that cold turkey. For my tummy problems, I would take pepto, mylanta, and a bunch of tums throughout the day.
That has prob been for over a month or so. On Sunday when I quit cold turkey off of that, indigestion and burning was bad.
I drink ginger tea with honey and that helps. It makes me burp and reduces the burning. I gave in today and took some tums. I also took a Prevacid which I didn't want to do but I was pretty bad today.
I also have an appt with a GI doc next month, but I'm hoping this will resolve itself and I won't have to go cuz I don't want to get an endoscopy.
I have noticed that if I eat any dairy, I'll be hurting even more. I've learned to stay away from that.
Do you have nausea? R u taking anything for it right now?
